  1. Yeah I think there will be hefty penalties for actual breakdowns, we haven't quite sorted that yet haha.
  2. Okay, Here are the rough points system so far, subject to change, and for extra stuff to be added onto. 1: Budget challenge For every dollar spent over the $500 to purchase the car, you will be penalized 1 point. For every dollar under $500 you will gain 1 point. This is just for the purchase price. We didn't include spending money on wof stuff as most cars will more than likely need a little bit of work to get to wof standard if they don't already have one. 2: Working features You will lose 1 point for every feature (eg. AC, central locking, radio etc etc) that doesn't work. So the more features your car has, the more chance you have to lose points! 3: SPEEEEEEEED! This one is pretty simple, we will find a suitable space and have a good old fashioned drag race, elimination if it's not wide enough for more than 2 cars. 5 points to the winner, 3 to 2nd, 2 to 3rd, 1 to 4th. Anyone behind that will get nada. 4: Economy We will all fill up at the same petrol stations along the way to determine who has the most economical vehicle, I'd say the points will go much the same as the drag race. Bonus points for the car thats the worst haha. 5: Form & Function We will cram as many people in each car as physically possible. 1 point per person, there will be 2 children coming along which will count as 0.5 points. 6: Public opinion Seeing as we're doing this over the holiday break, we will park up somewhere (queenstown waterfront, picton waterfront etc) with good human traffic and get the public to vote for which car they think is the best/coolest over the course of 30mins. 1 point per vote. This will be each team's chance to woo the general public with their shitbox. 7: Lap time This will be done on the last day, if we go on the molesworth as planned, each team will complete a 500m stretch of the gravel road. Fastest time wins. Or if we go via kaikoura, we'll do a lap of the kaikoura go cart/drift track each. Same points as drag race. 8: country of origin This is where we've rated the shittest cars via their country of origin. Points for the riskiest country Italy- 100 points France- 80 points Rest of Europe- 30 points America- 50 points Russia- 30 points Korea and china- 25 points Straya- MINUS 20 points Then the usual rules, make sure you've at least got a wof. Don't be a dick. Etc etc.
  3. We're currently working on a points system along those lines haha. Should be revealed shortly.
  4. A vectra B with issues. Perfect. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/242783184433267/
  5. Yeah this really. I guess reg isn't as much of an issue. But wof should probably be.
  6. Depends if you wanna run the risk haha. Just want to re-iterate for anyone coming along on this. We are not really organizing anything per say. Like it's a sort your own accom spec trip. Once we've got our accom ironed out I'll post in here where we'll be each night.
  7. So yeah, this is team Italia. A punishing PRV V6 Powered lancia thema that doesn't run properly and has check engine light on. What's the worst that could happen?! I'm so pumped.
  8. This would be a great candidate. V6 vectra b with electrical issues. Lowball 500. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/367016741555284/
  9. There's only one way to make a Sierra kind of OK. 13bpp.
  10. That would be awesome, if it was in the right island haha.
  11. The hydrogas suspension is sagging supposedly. But runs/drives etc.
  12. It's OK, we have a suitable Italian executive saloon lined up... It definitely goes with the theme(a)
  13. If it was an awful one like a 9000 then it'd well and truly be on the list.
  14. Plz do. I believe @Carsnz123 will be taking his paj for a support vehicle/pit crew spec.
  15. Day 4: GTFO of Blenheim and head to Dashwood. Then go inland and through the Molesworth down to Hanmer Springs. Then back down to ChurChur. And finish with many a beer on Friday the 7th jan at someone's house/smash palace. This last day is very weather dependent with river levels and whatnot having non 4wd vehicles. If it's too shit we'll just be taking an easy last leg down the coast. Stopping at the Kaikoura go kart/drift track and doing some time trials with our pieces of shit. That is the base plan of the route. Points system yet to be discussed. But dates and route are locked in at least now.
